KATHRYN HAHN JOINS STARRY ENSEMBLE OF NETFLIX'S 'KNIVES OUT 2'

Kathryn Hahn

Variety reports that Kathryn Hahn will move from putting a hex on the Scarlet Witch to trying to outmaneuver Benoit Blanc.

She joins the ever-expanding ensemble cast of Knives Out 2, where she will rub shoulders and drop clues alongside Dave Bautista, Janelle Monae, Edward Norton and, of course, Daniel Craig (reprising his role as expert detective Blanc).

Netflix will release the sequel and a third installment in the whodunit franchise after agreeing to shell out $450 million for the rights. The first Knives Out was released by Lionsgate and became a sleeper hit, grossing $311.4 million when it opened in 2019. Writer and director Rian Johnson earned an Oscar nomination for his screenplay.

Filming is expected to start soon in Greece, with Johnson sliding back behind the camera. He will also write the screenplay. Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but chances are somebody will die mysteriously and there will be many, many suspects with iffy alibis, delicious backstories and ample motivation to commit murder.

LOKI HEAD WRITER TALKS ABOUT WORKING IN THE MCU

Loki

What is it like writing for Marvel Studios? Collider asked that very question of Michael Waldron, head writer of Loki and writer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Specifically they wanted to know what it was like creating new material in a collective universe like the MCU: "Well, I think one of the joys of being a writer in the Marvel world is getting to make terrible messes and leave them for your [successors]. Although, occasionally, you find yourself being your own [successor]."

His Doctor Strange sequel will be directly influenced by the Loki series. "For instance, you write the Loki show and then you end up writing Doctor Strange 2, having to clean up your own mess and that can be a lot of fun. It's certainly important to define the rules, the background, the history of this organization, as much as we can to tell the story. But ultimately, all that's canon is what winds up on camera. So everything between those lines is open for interpretation, changing and everything."

Waldron also mentions that, like in the comics, everything is open to reimagining in the future: "It's like somebody wants to do a story with the TVA moving forward, certainly, we can have a conversation and I can tell them, 'Hey, here's what I thought maybe it would be,' but that's their thing, at that point and they should take it in their own direction."
WHY DID LOKI FEATURE A SODA DISCONTINUED FOR OVER 20 YEARS?

Josta

Did you wonder why Mobius (Owen Wilson) was drinking Josta Soda, a beverage that has been discontinued since 1999? Well, Loki director Kate Herron answered that question to the AV Club: “In the writer's room they were adding in stuff that basically doesn't exist anymore. So that was a fun joke that we tried to continue. I'm not sure who picked Josta... I think it might have been Eric Martin." Martin is an executive producer on the series.

It turns out it kind of shows the power of the TVA: "Because they exist outside of space and time and they have access to all this stuff. So, yeah, it's just little details like that, like you said, you watch it, and you're like 'Wait a minute, I know that drink!'" Consider it product placement for people who see time as a flat circe.

Deathstroke

DC Comics has announced the creative team and details for the upcoming Deathstroke Inc. series. The series was originally announced back at the ComicsPRO event in February of this year along with ten other titles, but no details for the book was given at the time. The creative team of Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter will be reteaming after their recent run on The Flash. Williamson has been all over the DC universe having written Batman, Robin, Batman/Superman and the recent Infinite Frontier. Porter has a celebrated stint on Justice League, JLA, Superman and Batman Beyond Unlimited.

The synopsis for the series reads: After suffering too many losses, Slade Wilson decides it's time for a change. When he's enlisted to work with an ages-old secret organization called T.R.U.S.T. who want to take down the heavy-hitter villains, he's all in.

The first issue is set to release on September 28th, 2021.

Paquin Jackman

X-Men star Anna Paquin was interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter and asked about who she was closest too while filming: "Hugh [Jackman] was definitely my best friend on the first one. Then they started bringing in cast members that were closer to my age...there was like a kind of younger little gaggle of late teens, 20-somethings, but Hugh was the person I was always closest to because I had all my scenes with him and he's just wonderful."

She also mentioned just how much Jackman was put through during the first film and how he was always great to her. "He is still a lovely, gracious human being, but he got put through the wringer on that first one and never ever complained. [It would] be minus-40 [degrees], he's being dropped off some building onto his back over and over and over again and [he] still has all the time in the world to just be a nice normal person."

She gave a specific example of how close they were, talking about how the scene at the truck stop where he had his claws out and smoking a cigar, which he couldn’t do without hurting himself with the claws, so she would pick the cigar out from between his teeth. “What are friends for?”

ClaeiceNegotiations between CBSViacom and MGM Television have completely stalled, putting the chances of Clarice, the Silence of the Lambs sequel’s future in serious doubt. And Deadline is reporting that there is no viale way for the show to return to CBS as the network has already committed to a full slate for the fall, leaving Paramount+ as it’s only real option. Word had surfaced about a month ago that Clarice and SEAL Team Six would both move from CBS to Paramount+, and while the deal for SEAL as well as Evil have been made, the negotiations for Clarice are stalled and likely will mean that a show that once had a second season pickup will now be laying off 300 people.
'THE WITCHER'S FREYA ALLAN TO STAR IN HORROR THRILLER 'BAGHEAD'

Freya Allan, a breakout in the Netflix series The Witcher, is set to star in Baghead for Studiocanal and The Picture Company, Deadline reports. Production will begin in the fall in Berlin. Allan stars in the upcoming Studiocanal/The Picture Company action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake for Netflix.

The film will be directed by Alberto Corredor, who directed the short film that was acquired to be turned into a feature length horror film. Christina Pamies and Bryce McGuire wrote the script. Studiocanal will commence worldwide sales at the Cannes Market.

Baghead revolves around a mysterious figure called Baghead, a diminutive wrinkled up person who is able to manifest the dead and bring them back to our world for short intervals. People seek out the mysterious medium to reconnect with lost loved ones. Once in contact with Baghead, however, the title character’s true powers and intentions are revealed and there is a high price to pay for its contact with the deceased.

The feature transfer will build on that storyline and take a Saw-like approach, adding in supernatural elements. Allan will play the film’s lead, who must contend with the evil entity which has deep connections to her family’s past.
'PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY' STEALS $900K ON THURSDAY

Peter Rabbit 2

Sony is reporting the Thursday night previews to Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway which began at 4 p.m. yesterday at 2,572 theaters, and the long-awaited Will Gluck directed sequel grossed $900K. The first Peter Rabbit in February 2018 didn’t hold any previews.

Sony earlier in the week was expecting $8M-$10M, but the sequel could very well do in the teens at 3,300. As far as Thursday night comps to Peter Rabbit 2, it’s an apples-to-oranges comparison due to pre-pandemic numbers, however, both Sony’s Emoji Movie and Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls posted $900K Thursday nights, and respectively went on to $24.5M and $46.5M opening weekends. Peter Rabbit 2 has a 70% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The first installment of Peter Rabbit opened to $25M domestic and went on to make $115.2M domestic, $351.2M WW. While Sony has sold off some of its movies to Netflix (licensed out global rights, if you will), the Culver City lot kept Peter Rabbit 2, as they knew they could make some dough off of this one. Already, the sequel has banked over $46M offshore, after a staggered launch out of Australia at end of March (before Victoria closed down), and heads into China this weekend. (via Deadline)
